This article deals around making the w:Package inserts of both chemical and herbal medicines uniform. Aldough most pharmaceutical companies (less so with the companies making herbal medicines falling under the "food additives section") already make package inserts bearing similar information, no true uniformity already exists, and this should definitively be fixed.

The following headlines should be made in each package insert, and information should be introduced under the headline:

  • A description of the product
  • The characteristics of the product
  • The ingredients of the product
  • The amount of material of the product ingredient per capsule, 100 grams, ...
  • The daily dose
  • The duration of intake
  • The method of administration
  • Contraindications
  • The potential adverse effects
  • The license under which the product is distributed
  • The various names under which the product is on the market in several countries
  • The best method of preservation
  • Expiration date
  • Impact on driving and using machinery
  • Measures when using large quantities
